Ivanka Trump wedding: Our invite was apparently lost in the mail

October 26, 2009 |  2:21 pm

Ivanka Trump Ivanka Trump married Jared Kushner on Sunday at one of daddy Donald Trump’s billion or so Trump National Golf Clubs, People magazine reports.

Ivanka, who wore a Vera Wang gown and will keep her name professionally, has been keeping more than 400,000 of her friends updated with wedding and engagement details via Twitter.

But only 500 friends seem to have made it to the ceremony. Hmm. Did confusion about the location keep turnout well below the 400,000 mark?

In what I can only describe as a crushing blow for L.A.-area paparazzi (though I’m maybe the only one who’ll describe it that way -- Ivanka who?) the ceremony was held not at the Donald’s newish course down the road on the Palos Verdes Peninsula but rather at Daddy’s links in Bedminster, N.J. Not to be confused with his other New Jersey golf course in Colts Neck, of course. It’s tough enough for me to remember who in my family even plays golf. Totally mind-boggling the kinds of things the super-rich have to keep straight – but somehow the car services get it right, I guess. Even Regis Philbin’s people. Not so lucky were the legions of Twitter followers, who if they were indeed real, might have been wondering if their invites had gotten lost in the mail.

Or could hundreds of thousands of people, dazzled by that 5.22-carat Trump diamond, simply not firm up workable travel plans in the space of such a short engagement?

Perhaps New Jersey just made more sense for the couple’s celebration, what with Ivanka’s gig on “Celebrity Apprentice” (spoiler alert: clues to the Season 9 cast) and that little office job as an executive vice president for the Trump Organization. It’s also not so far for now-hubby Jared, who publishes the New York Observer and has been known to dabble in real estate himself. (Their needs before ours? Whose nutty idea what that?)

Still, the PV peninsula is so pretty in fall. Oh, well.

By the way, if you were thinking of sending them a little something to mark the occasion,  the New York Times has been kind enough to point us to a few of Jared and Ivanka's wedding gift registries.
